And some of us remember the Southern Kings as well. Some of us even remember the Southern kings winning a game or two – like this one: Southern Kings 34 (20) Highlanders 27 (17) – in which Cornell Du Preez scored a try – the image of that is in the article.
After the Southern Kings bowed out of Super Rugby the Kings ex head coach, Alan Solomons, hoovered up a lot of talent and moved them to Scotland with him – Du Preez being one of the recruits to the land of haggis and men in skirts.
Anyway, following a serious lower leg injury sustained 26 minutes into Saturday’s win over Dragons, Edinburgh Rugby no 8 Cornell Du Preez underwent surgery at the Royal Infirmary of Edinburgh over the weekend.
Cornell and all at Edinburgh Rugby convey their heartfelt thanks to the Paramedics from the Scottish Ambulance Service who attended to him on the pitch, to the orthopaedic department, trauma consultants and staff at the Royal Infirmary for their expertise and care during his stay, and to the many supporters for their goodwill messages.
Now back in the care of the Edinburgh Rugby medical team, Cornell’s progress will be monitored over the next few weeks to enable a timeline for recovery to be put together.
